Cozy without feeling crowded and comfortable without all the trappings, Espresso Fino is a gem of a coffee shop tucked into a narrow building Downtown. A single man (but seriously, a really, really nice one) runs the register and espresso machine, working quickly but still managing a perfect pour every time. Order up your espresso and get snug near the small communal library or sit outside and watch the traffic of Gold Ave. pass by. Whether you need a quick fix or you have hours to spend, Espresso Fino is the ideal spot for a personalized cup of very fine joe. (Alibi Staff, July 12, 2011)

This hidden Downtown gem serves up simple, delicious pizza. Additionally, they have a few salads and desserts avaliable for consumption. They cater and are able to drag around a wood burning stove with them wherever they go so you never have to worry about lost quality if you see them around town. They also offer delivery for those who are within a 1.5 mile radius of their location! (Alibi Staff, June 25, 2014)

Brick-oven pizza may have come to us from California, but they do it pretty well here in New Mexico. The chicken Caesar pizza is genius, with white cream sauce and a salad right on top of the pie. And if the pizzas don’t get you going, there’s homemade pasta, yummy minestrone and a lineup of excellent beer. Perhaps the best thing on the menu is the torta dessert—a mountain of puff pastry, baked apples and cinnamon ice cream. Dive in with a demitasse of fresh espresso. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

One of you wants pizza, another insists on soup and salad, the third won’t eat anything but pasta. Don’t waste time fighting; just get on over to Tomato Cafe. It’s quick, inexpensive and all-you-can-eat. Those aren’t usually words you’d use to describe genuinely good food but the pizza here is. Super-thin-crusted and topped with things like feta, basil, barbecued chicken and artichoke hearts, it’s a dream come true (except for Chicago-style fans). (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Cuisine: Italian

3.96 rating (37 votes)
Trombino's Bistro Italiano has been an institution of family-style Italian dining in the Heights for more than 30 years. It houses an impressively fat menu that includes a full bar, espresso drinks and an ample wine list. The service is quicker than a Hollywood marriage, and the waitstaff seems particularly knowledgeable about the food and wines. Gravitate to the more rustic Italian fare—lemon-basil chicken salad, grilled homemade Italian sausage, prosciutto-wrapped asparagus and manicotti--all are amply portioned and tasty.

If you want fancy food but don’t feel like getting all gussied up, give Torinos’ a try. The food here is where all the energy goes, from authentic recipes to fresh, local ingredients, you can tell that the owners care about what you’re putting in your mouth. They even serve local wines and beers! We recommend the beef cheek manicotti that’s been braised for five hours. Yum. (Alibi Staff, October 8, 2015)

Now under new management, it seems the new owners are more than capable of upholding the standards of this local staple. In the guilty pleasures department, the foie gras would satisfy the itch of the most jaded addicts. Don’t pass up the spezzatino, a slowly braised beef brisket served with gnocchi. There’s also half-melted mallard duck confit served with tomato provenzale. (Alibi Staff, February 2, 2011)

In addition to some of the best NY-style crust, sauce and toppings in town, this family-run pizza joint houses arcade classics Joust, Pong and Frogger. J.J.'s also boasts hot, New Mexico-grown green chile (as it should), jumbo cheese ravioli for about six bucks, calzones, hot subs and buffalo wings that are enormous and juicy.

Combining his daughters’ names—Sara and Tori—Tully’s owner Johnny Camuglia came up with Saratori’s, then put to use a wealth of family Italian baking recipes. Limone farfalla (crumbly lemon bows), buccellati biscotto (rolled cookies filled with figs), buttery, shell-shaped sfogliatelle with hundreds of flaky ripples and an orange rind-and-ricotta cheese center, and albicocca biscotti (apricot-stuffed biscuits) are just some of the goodies to be found in Camuglia's cases. All are delicious. Closed Sundays and Mondays. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

This small Italian delicatessen is jam-packed with enough imported and domestic meats, cheeses and specialty items to turn any kitchen into an authentic cucina Italiana. At the meat counter you'll find fresh prosciutto, salami, house-made sausage, and a variety of veal, beef and pork cuts. Cheeses run the gamut from humble staples like Parmesan, Pecorino Romano and fresh Mozzarella to fancier formaggio like Fontina, Gorgonzola and Locatelli. Step over to the lunch counter for a quick Italian snack made with ingredients you know are top-notch. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Albuquerque - Nob Hill

Elaine’s

Albuquerque NM 87106
433-4782
Tues-Sat: 5pm-10:30pm (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: Dinner
Nearby Theater: Guild Cinema (See Film Times)

3.11 rating (66 votes)
First off, you might want to dress up a little so you don’t feel like a total boob in Elaine’s intimate, hip/luxe dining room. Secondly, make sure you’ve got a full wallet before going in—we’re talking $55 a person minimum. And finally, ready your palate for some spectacular food. We recommend the filet mignon or the Scottish salmon, but really, it’s hard to go wrong at a place like this. Be sure to check out the extensive wine list as well. (Alibi Staff, January 28, 2014)

Il Vicino’s thin-crusted, gourmet-topped pizzas are perennial favorites among Alibi readers, but the big salads are equally popular. Order at the register, and a server brings the food to your table, making weekday lunches speedy. The open kitchen gives you something to stare at while you wait. Stop in for a quick lunch or a late afternoon microbrew at one of the sidewalk tables.

Meals Served: DinnerOpen Late
Nearby Theater: Guild Cinema (See Film Times)

3.67 rating (30 votes)
The Last Call is one of the best late-night eateries in town. They consistently have excellent food with plenty of vegetarian options. While it’s packed after midnight, if you go when they open (5:05pm), there’s virtually no line. In other words, nothing is standing between you and a taste of heaven. The Cali burrito with veggies is perfection, but we highly recommend the fish tacos and truffle grilled cheese. (Alibi Staff, October 4, 2012)

Limonata

3222 Silver Ave SE (Nob Hill)

This sunny café occupies the sweet spot in The Village at Silver and Wellesley vacated by Café Giuseppe. Giuseppe regulars will be happy to know Limonata still offers killer espresso and teas, now paired with a large array of mouth-watering Italian treats. Try the prosciutto panini, the antipasto platter for two or stock up on authentic Italian groceries in the market. Don’t forget to order a Nutella or strawberry jam crêpe. You’ll have the pleasure of watching the cooking process right before your eyes. (Alibi Staff, December 10, 2012)

Scalo Northern Italian Grill

3.51 rating (99 votes)
The surprising thing about Scalo is that it’s simultaneously more fancy and less expensive than you’d think. It’s just as breezy and classy as ever in its high-ceilinged dining room. All of the bottles on the wine list are half-price on Monday nights, and there’s free, live music in the bar. Try their Bloody Mary bar on the weekends, or their Sunday brunch. There’s plenty of fresh-pressed espresso to sip with it. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Itsa Italian Ice

Itsa Italian Ice is an old favorite for many Burqueños. Originally located on Lomas years ago, Itsa was—and is—for kids and grown-ups alike. Diners can choose from several fruity flavors like cantaloupe, lemon, cherry, watermelon, black raspberry, lime, grape or banana, as well as other flavors like chocolate or "blue moon" (cotton candy). Each tastes remarkably like the food it was named for, and the portion sizes are enormous. On the hot side, there are hamburgers, dogs and a Philly cheese steak that’s tender and visibly marbled, made with steak that actually tastes like steak. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Joe S. Sausage and Ravioli

1900 4th Street NW (North Valley)
Albuquerque NM 87107
(505) 688-0445
Mon-Sat 10am-6pm (hours can change without notice)

4.48 rating (23 votes)
This little North Valley specialty store turns out three things—sausage, ravioli and pierogi. You know it’s got to be good. An amazing and constantly changing variety of flavors are made fresh every day by Joe S. Sausage himself, which he freezes and sells for his loyal customers to take home. Plop the raviolis in some simmering water for a few minutes and they cook up perfectly tender. Serve alongside Joe’s sizzling-fresh sausage and you’ve got the fastest, most delicious “homemade” meal you’ve ever tasted. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)
